DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray 9-inch springform pan with baking spray; set aside.
  • Cake: Drain cherries, reserving 1/2 cup of the syrup; set aside. Place 1 cup Blue Bonnet and the sugar in large bowl; beat with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until well blended after each addition. Beat on high speed 1 minute. Add cocoa powder, flour, 1/4 cup of the reserved cherry syrup and 1 tablespoon brandy; beat on low speed until well blended. Pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until just until center is firm. Cool 30 minutes. (Cake will sink as it cools.)

  • Place cherries in food processor container; cover. Process until cherries resemble a coarse puree. Add to cake crumbs; mix well. Return to center of cake; smooth top with spatula.
  • Frosting: Place chocolate and 1/4 cup Blue Bonnet in medium microwavable bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM (50% power) 1-1/2 minutes. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add 1/4 cup reserved cherry syrup and 1 tablespoon brandy; stir until well blended. Cool to spreading consistency. Spread onto top and side of cake. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
